Actor Thomas Jane is a nerdlebrity we give a pass to because he’s definitely a real comics fan, and gets choked up talking about Jack Kirby and was pals with Dave Stevens and so on. His Raw Studios production company (which is co-owned by Tim Bradstreet)has just partnered with Comixology for digital release of Raw’s comics, and to promote it he’s doing a pretty cool thing on twitter. Jane is asking fans to tweet their favorite comics covers, which he will then post with QR codes that lead to a voiceover explaining why he loves each cover. The tag is #comiccovers, and there have been some pretty good ones. Well, you can’t go wrong with Frontline Combat.
To promote the Raw/Comixology pact, Jane is also giving away 10 downloads of the Dark Country graphic novel which is illustrated by Thomas Ott (The Number 73304-23-4153-6-96-8) meaning it is actually a really great looking comic:
Like we said, not your typical nerdlebrity comic.
